This is the story of Nick and Art, two good friends of mine and their love for everything motorcycle. I got my first bike earlier this year and was lucky enough to have their help bringing it to life. Their passion is contagious and their dedication to riding, tinkering, and restoring is seriously inspiring.
On the tail of another project, I found myself with a free evening and my hands full of some stellar gear, so we headed up to the garage to see what we could create. It wasn't the most sophisticated of shoots (by a long shot) but when there is great content in front of you, things seem to come alive.
This is a glimpse into their world. Thanks to everyone in Blackbirds who came out and rode on short notice, to Trent for jumping in and helping me pull this off (and Logan and John), and my buddy Joel for writing an unbelievable score to take this thing to the next level.
